Waynesburg University recently established an agreement with Agape College, located in northeastern India, through which Agape will recruit international students in Nagaland, India, for Waynesburg University.
“Waynesburg’s strategic goals include the increase of our global literacy and diversity – building student understanding of an engagement with the world around us,” said Rev. Carolyn Poteet, director of international programs at Waynesburg University.
“The partnership with Agape will directly contribute to these goals. We also hope that these international students will gain the skills and wisdom they need to be world changers, growing in faith, learning and serving here at Waynesburg.”
Agape College was founded in 1991 and has established strong relationships among the Christian communities of Nagaland. Nagaland is one of three majority-Christian states in India, thus providing an opportunity for Waynesburg and its Christian-based mission to further its international presence and partnerships.
“Agape College is excited to become a partner with Waynesburg University,” said Agape College President Dr. Louis Ao. “This partnership will expand opportunities for students from India to pursue an American college education with over 70 major concentrations offered at a highly rated Christian university.”
International student applicants to Waynesburg are eligible for merit scholarship consideration based on their high school academic achievement and SAT scores.
Agape, an independent, non-denominational Bible college, is accredited by the Asia Theological Association.
Agape will begin the recruiting process immediately for the 2016-17 academic year. For more information, contact Poteet at email@example.com or 724-852-3302, or Dr. Keshito Awomi, principal at Agape College, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 879-432-6104.
